The Yves of Metal

Gold, silver, chrome or bronze.

The metallic palette if applied properly always adds a touch of class to a pair of shoes. An upgrade in perception I'd call it. The glint of that shiny metal is something I favor in shoes. However, it shouldn't overwhelm the design of the shoes instead just enough to imbue that flavor of glamor.

Enter the Yves Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2012 runway. 

Personally, I didn't find the YSL A/W 2012 as visually exciting as the YSL S/S 2012 - shoe wise that is. The shoes for the collection were armored in gold plated metals. Under the 'armor' were clean and classic designs, giving its golden armor a greater emphasis.  Among the more simple/tame designs, there are designs that presents themselves more like a mace but where there should be the spikes of death, there are diamonds of opulence. 

A collection suited for the modern warrior princess.
